Sept.06 – British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) is still not confirmed for highlights broadcasting of the F1 races that it does not air live 2012 – with sources suggesting that full re-runs of grands prix have not been totally ruled out yet.
Bernie Ecclestone recommended to The Independent that the BBC will be restricted to highlights of just “75 minutes of every race”, which appeared to dash hopes of full re-runs online or on its red button interactive service, high level sources at the television company have revealed that a final plan has yet to be agreed. As part of the deal put in place with Ecclestone for 2012, the BBC will show half of the races live – with coverage of those that are broadcast only on Sky being shown later in the day.
BBC will not comment on the plans until a ultimate decision has been made.
